To be honest, I dont like it D:   I really hate how every time I scroll to a new item it tells me what it is.... I know what most item names are, and if i dont, I just look in my inventory. I do like fireworks tho. .. BUT WHY ARE CHICKEN EGGS NOT ROUND ?!? (Sphere shaped)

EDIT: I guess I like like the firework, now that I know how to make them, tho. XD. I also like how Its possible to breed chickens with melon/pumpkin seeds

You can deactivate it in your options.txt file, a switch in the game menu is likely to follow.

Everyone, I apologize greatly for my mistake.  I never would have guessed fireworks existed that long ago.  Please accept my apology!

The fact of the matter is......what you see it as, but not only what you see it as, but how you see it as.

I don't get it.  Minecraft [b][i]WAS[/i][/b] supposed to be Medieval castles-and-knights, middle ages theme.  Fireworks were not around 1500 years ago.  Minecraft is just not what it used to be.  The only things I see that are good in this update are the bug-fixes, Enchanting Books, and the new Christmas texture for chests.

Please do not keep the fireworks Jeb, they don't fit the Minecraft style!!!

So fireworks, which were available in ancient China, are not medieval enough for you, but magical books that give your tools special powers, are?

Fireworks definitely existed during the Middle Ages. There are a lot of things that don't fit the theme, but they don't take away from the game. You don't have to use anything that you don't like.

Minecraft is not a medieval castle's and knights set up. Minecraft is a game about exploration, building, surviving, and most off all, having fun! If you think Minecraft is a medieval type game then, go jump in a lake.
Nothing here...

[/quote] No, fireworks are awesome and a great addition for new year's eve. And Minecraft was never meant to just be medieval. People can make their world like the present, or even the future.

The smoothest texture pack there is.       Posted Image
